Jacek Podsiadło

Absinthe 10 included a poem by Jacek Podsiadło and at the web site for the Polish Book Institute there is a brief mention of his new book of fiction.

An excerpt:

Podsiadło is interested in all paths—the well-trodden, like the Road to Slovakia, to Egon Bondy, and the unfamiliar, explored for the first time. Of these routes, as noted in the book, there are hundreds, and the equally intriguing guide-narrator makes even getting lost on them into an adventure. The whole thing is a journey that has never taken place in Polish literature before.
